I’ve always said no matter where you live, country, seaside or suburbs, you can evoke a feeling of being anywhere with thoughtful interior and garden design. If you have wonderful memories of holidaying in the Mediterranean then there is nothing to stop you re-creating those memories by adding touches of the Mediterranean with colour, pattern, furniture and the right accessories. Today’s house tour is a holiday home that feels as if it could be in the Algarve, yet it is resides in the locales of Florida.
I have to keep looking over these photos as each time I spot something different. Blue and white chinoiserie and black iron lighting can be typical of a Hamptons style home, however with the eclectic choice of furnishing and bold colour combinations Summer has used, this home is far from Hamptons. I think this is what I love most about Summer’s work, her style is refreshingly different. Please visit her website Summer Thornton Design.com to view more of her wonderful environments.
